Going Deeper with AWS IoT Greengrass – Get Hands-On with the Cloud Side of AWS IoT

UST Room #407

1:15 pm - 3:15 pm

Cloud & Apps


This class is designed to go into more technical depth on AWS IoT Greengrass than the session we are giving on Tuesday (April 23rd). If you are not familiar with AWS IoT Greengrass or similar platforms, click to join us there!

How This Fits Into IoT

If you look at the edge, we know that not all IoT data belongs in the cloud.  We know that for compliance reasons some data MUST stay at the edge, whereas sometimes it’s more efficient to stay at the edge.  We bring the services, components and tools to be able to do this at the edge.  However when you want to apply AI and other advanced data techniques in the cloud we want to be able to quickly and easily give you that capability.  You need a platform to build on, you don’t want to build your own platform.  There are enough big platforms out there that customers should be using – which we bring to you, providing better speed to market.

What Attendees Do

Attendees will stitch together a solution using a full complement of AWS IoT services and tools.  The difference between this year and last year is that we have some updated tools, dashboards and plugins.

Learning Objectives

Greengrass has evolved considerably in the last year.   We have more security, more scalability and more services focused on the analytical side of IoT data, including time series analysis, IoT analytics and ETL for IoT data.  This can be used for IoT events and new features which apply to industrial applications.

Ultimately you’re going to get workshop material that’s there for the long-term. We don’t take this material down – so this will complement your long term project builds.

There are 20 labs beyond this workshop which may take a skilled person 2-3 days to complete, we want to get you in the best possible position to be able to complete those successfully and more quickly.

What Attendees Bring

Laptop – Everything done through browser.

Attendee Preparation Work (Downloads, Reading)

Set up a working AWS account if you don’t already have one.  Even if you have one, it would be good to double check that it works because if you set it up a long time ago you might need to set up a new account.

Knowledge Required

All sorts of technical professionals are welcome, the most successful will be the firmware engineer, software engineer, anyone with an engineering skill set should be fine.  If you don’t have a software or engineering background, you are welcome to attend, it just requires some patience.  We will have people on site to help.  This particular course will be more advanced than our Tuesday session.

Pre-class Set-up

Set up a working AWS account if you don’t already have one.  Even if you have one, it would be good to double check that it works because if you set it up a long time ago you might need to set up a new account.
